Leader of Opposition in MP Assembly said, “I will not leave Congress and join BJP, I am not Scindia.”

Indore. Leader of Opposition in Madhya Pradesh Assembly Umang Singhar on Wednesday rejected the speculations about joining Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), saying that he is not Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia. With his remarks, he targeted Scindia under whose patronage the then Kamal Nath government had fallen on March 20, 2020, due to 22 rebel Congress MLAs resigning from the Assembly and joining the BJP. After this, BJP returned to power in the state on 23 March 2020 under the leadership of Shivraj Singh Chauhan.

Singhar told reporters in Indore, BJP leaders from Delhi to Bhopal have been contacting me (for defection) for the last several years. Even when Kamal Nath government was leaving, I was given all kinds of inducements. Even then I did not join BJP because I am Umang Singhar… not Scindia. He alleged that to divert voters’ attention from the core issues in the Lok Sabha elections, the BJP is fanning speculations about defection of senior Congress leaders. Singhar alleged that the ruling BJP is playing politics to put pressure on opposition leaders by misusing central agencies like the Enforcement Directorate and the Income Tax Department.

He said, “If the Congress had done such politics in the last 70 years, the BJP would not have been visible today.” Also targeted for involvement. He claimed that Rawat had joined BJP out of greed for ministerial post. He said, “It does not make any difference to the Congress if such people in power leave the Congress.” Indore’s Congress candidate Akshay Kanti Bam, giving a big blow to the party, had withdrawn his nomination on April 29, the last day of withdrawal of nominations. And had joined BJP. Singhar took a dig at the bomb, saying it turned out to be a “fussy bomb” (a bad firecracker that doesn’t explode). He said, “Whether it is Surat or Indore, the law and the Constitution are being openly flouted. BJP is trying to change the Constitution of the country.
